Mark 4:30-32 CEV “Finally, Jesus said: What is God’s kingdom like? What story can I use to explain it? It is like what happens when a mustard seed is planted in the ground. It is the smallest seed in all the world. But once it is planted, it grows larger than any garden plant. It even puts out branches that are big enough for birds to nest in its shade.”
Listen to me, don’t be intimidated by your present! Don’t be discouraged by your present size! You might be very small right now, it might seem as if nothing is happening, it might look like there’s no life in what you’re doing; it’s only a matter of time, it’s going to be very great! Hallelujah!
Yours is to plant. Paul said, “I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase.” So you see, God is responsible for growth. And when God grows a thing, it is certainly going to be very great! Hallelujah!
Stop worrying about growth! Did you hear me? I said, stop worrying about growth! It’s God’s business and not yours! Plant whatever seed God has given to you and keep watering it, then leave the rest for God. Job 8:7 CEV says, “Your future will be brighter by far than your past.” The ERV says, “Then you will have a lot more than you had in the beginning!” And the NKJV says, “Though your beginning was small, Yet your latter end would increase abundantly.” Hallelujah!
